Former Miss Iraq Goes Head-to-Head with Ilhan Omar: '[She] Does Not Represent Me as a Muslim'

 

 

A Former Miss Iraq is making clear something about Ilhan Omar: The Minnesota representative most certainly does not rep her “as a Muslim.”

Speaking to The Sara Carter Show, she explained that she’s not the only one:

“Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim — does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East.”

Ilhan responded by clarifying she’s not actually Sarah’s congresswoman:

As an American politician, Miss Iraq thinks Ilhan stinks. And that her tweet was dumb:

Ilhan gave the “Okay” symbol to a posted retort:

AbbyZabby is, of course, right — Ilhan wasn’t chosen to stand for all Muslims everywhere. But that doesn’t preclude Sarah from wanting to distance herself:

In November of ’14, here’s what Daniel Pipes of National Review had to say about CAIR. Draw your own conclusions:

It apologizes for terrorist groups: Challenged repeatedly to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups, CAIR denounces the acts of violence but not their sponsors.

It is connected to Hamas: Hamas, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and many other governments, indirectly created CAIR and the two groups remain tight. Examples: In 1994, CAIR head Nihad Awad publicly declared his support for Hamas; the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a Hamas front group, contributed $5,000 to CAIR; in turn, CAIR exploited the 9/11 attacks to raise money for HLF; and, this past August, demonstrators at a CAIR-sponsored rally in Florida proclaimed “We are Hamas!”

It settled a lawsuit: CAIR initiated a libel lawsuit in 2004 over five statements by a group called Anti-CAIR. But two years later, CAIR settled the suit with prejudice (meaning that it cannot be reopened), implicitly acknowledging the accuracy of Anti-CAIR’s assertions, which included:

“CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists”;
“CAIR . . . is supported by terrorist supporting individuals, groups and countries”;
“CAIR has proven links to, and was founded by, Islamic terrorists”; and
“CAIR actively supports terrorists and terrorist supporting groups and nations.”

As for “fleeing from the same ideology” as Ilhan, Sarah does indeed know a thing or two about the refuge that is the free United States of America.

As reported by Fox News:

Idan, who grew up during the Iraq War, praised U.S. soldiers and heavily criticized the way former dictator Saddam Hussein treated his people. Idan received death threats and was forced to flee from Iraq after she posted an Instagram photo alongside Miss Israel in 2017.

Would Ilhan pose with Miss Israel? It seems less than likely.
